Any particular reason the 6 spoke premounts are excluded?

Probowler - We are not allowing the 6 spoke premounts for their performance advantage. The wheel is lighter than the standard mesh wheel. Because the decrease of weight is from a rotating part, the wheels and tires, there is a performance advantage.
